Fresh from his successes on Planet-Mu, Barry has given us this nice little slice from his past. From Barry - "I made Koss, 98 Loop and Rhodes Draft in 1998 right after I got my first PC for doing tunes on. I was heavily into DJ Shadow so I wanted to try putting tracks together from samples of old vinyl, which I already had a decent sized collection of thanks to my Dad. I also spent ages going through all the record shops in Belfast looking for old jazz and soundtracks and stuff like that...

"This was originally released as a 3" CD on October Man Recordings in two editions; green (first) and gold (second), on the 5th of July 2008. I remembered reading that Ian had planned to re-release it as mp3s at some stage, so I had to get in there and acquire it for Acroplane. It's the 1st Koen Park music I encountered, and is still probably my fav of his releases, although i've enjoyed everything i've heard to date. Melodic Electronica as good as any i've heard. So yeah, enjoy....

The 1st release on Acroplane by Lackluster. 'One of a kind' is the expression, which best describes the Finnish electronic music auteur Esa Ruoho, regardless whether we are talking about the organic quality of his music under the artist name Lackluster or just the artist himself in his private life. Esa Ruoho is truly an original; a homegrown and uncompromising composer and an eccentric explorer of science and nature. The Cold Trail EP is Esa at his melodic best.

Koen Park is the work of Ian D Hawgood. Working between his small apartment in Tokyo and his mum's garage in south London, he makes washed out electro-hip-hop -pop-folk-shoegaze music. Pastoral Pioneer was made with circuit bent casios, drums, piano, field recordings, melodica, harmonium, warbly old tape recorders and musical smarts. The results are both unique and wonderful.

'Automatic Tasty' is the result of one fella's misguided electronic wanderings, and, having only recently been created is still toddling about in relative infancy. Playing to approximately six people at a time in his bedroom he has quickly risen to massive fame, his soulful brand of angst-ridden pop-balladry causing him to come to the attentions of that unflinching bastion of the underground, Mr. Louis Walsh, who posthumously referred to him in a recent interview as being both 'the next big...

A one-man show, combining crazy live drumming with schizophrenic brain-numbing laptop programming, based in victoria, b.c, Ruairi Lazers has an experimental approach to dance music that often results in the unpredictable. All manner of styles and tempos are mashed together in an intelligent mix of acoustic instruments, ambient interludes, melodic synths and breakbeats. His sound is influenced by the artists such as Tipper, Richard H Kirk, Shpongle and Si Begg as well as the output of Skam,...

‘Passing’, a collection of music recorded between 2003 & 2006. "A seductive amniotic experience" - Belfast Telegraph. Like scores for little unmade films or little moments in time, Brian's compositions move through far-reaching sonic landscapes filled with simple melodies, complex beats and hanging chords, both unexpected and beautiful! An individual voice, distinctive, striking, alluring.

‘Temporalities’ is a collection of attempts towards selectively hijacking the folding and unfolding of metronomes in order to dismantle BPM. In this e.p. the turtle is not given a head start, the barber has spilled his tea prior to the dissolving of the sugar because he did not know if he could shave himself and 100 Ligetis are unable to sync start counting together and so go after the turtle, past Adam and Eve’s zum-tot, until their frame is almost frozen while attempting to cross the...

German born, Belgium residing Egon Fisk has been writing music since he was only 12. His varying pieces of recent electronica (available here) show an attention to detail, a musicality and an originality rarely matched these days. Some of it works killer on the dancefloor too, as tested in Belfast by us :) He has recently released some other music on Roulette Records, and i believe he has some music coming out on Umbrelladelika Records soon, so keep an eye out for those.

This next installment from our beleaguered pal, the Automatic Tasty, is a seven track EP documenting the recent hardships that have befallen this relic. Our knackered mate Is currently spending his days eating packets of sugar under a bridge, a fitting end, Really. Having taken an unflinching, top down look at the sidelines, rather than Quite reading things as they appear, he has come to terms with the undeniable, & Awful, situation at hand, & intends now, to act accordingly.

"Music To Fall Off Yer Bike To" is the first harvest of farmed Bluebottlage. It has received high critical acclaim from folk who were once master cyclists and who now spend their days gazing wistfully through hospital windows; attentively tuned to the anthems of those tragic moments when bicycle, headphones and traffic cones collide, and the gentle clink of emptied bedpans.

A Google German translation of 'Wahn' would say "delusion/insanity, something that seems to refer to psychiatric troubles", although Wahn does not have any mental illness (yet). Although he is French, Germany has definitely had an influence on his sound, Sven Vath and Carsten Jancker especially...errrrrr, well they would maybe have had some if he had continued to listen to Hardfloor while smoking and drinking... In truth, Wahn prefers the Funkstorung way with Thomas Häßler's...
